Margaret Ketchersid

Her love is not blind
It is clear and forgiving
Her touch is all-knowing
Her joy is life giving

This angel, my mother, gives of herself
And illuminates me
With compassion’s true wealth

A symbol of courage
And strength she remains
And understands all my joys and pains

To gaze at my mother
Who strives beyond duty
Is to see radiate
Her unique warming beauty!

The sweet voice of mother
Her strong, safe, embrace
I long to possess
Her pure, natural, grace

My Mother, my guide
And gemstone so rare
Deserves out of likeness
A diamond as fair
